. to deflect the criticism for having made that false promise people can keep their plans and doctors the matter what, the president offered a new promise. take a listen. president obama: most people will be able to buy better plans for the same price or even cheaper than what they've got before. >> that's not inaccurate argument. so if your plan is covering a bunch of things you don't need, how is a better plan for you? >> there is no real evidence for that. and you can do the math. most of the policies and that claim could spend more, cover more things, provide more visits and charge less. insurance company only does that even has a whole bunch of cash lying around. no sign of expert and a profit that that to happen. >> the promise that most people would be better off is sharply disputed by many including a number of individuals experiencing sticker shock even those who had pre-existing conditions. listen. $891 per month to $1437 per month. and also, my deductibles all doubled. >> now analysts also argued those whose policies are canceled will be covered, but not at lower prices. th

for obama care so all the elderly people are finding out it's coming out of medicare advantage. they are finding out they are getting kicked off their medicare advantage plans so they can't keep their doctors. we had two promises this president made in 2009 and 2010 when he knew it wasn't true. you can keep the plan if you like your insurance plan, you can keep it, if you like your doctor, you can keep it. none of those is true and it's not just for the unemployed. it's for the elderly, for the people on employer plans, it's for everyone. this whole house of cards is affecting all americans and that's why you see obama's poll numbers plummeting. >> i hate to sound like a republican economist but just let me for a second. the $700 billion that the republicans talk about being cut from medicare actually is $700 billion that won't be spent on medicare because the providers reimbursement has been diminished over a period of time. the republicans talk a lot about how they want to rein in health care costs because after all, that's the real problem here, and what the president did wa

away from republicans politically. so far obama care, not just indicts democrats on overpromising, on the incredible promises that they made, if you like your insurance, they can keep it, all of those promises, it also indicts liberalism on the ability to restuck tur the economy. but again, those are im probably books probable wishful thinking for all of that to play out. what i think 2014 might end up looking like, cheerleaders don't matter in this football game, the field has been set, what it could look like is a combination of if if you like your plan, you can keep it as the employer mandate kicks in, they get kicked off of them. and tarp, 2008 bailouts for the insurance companies who can't afford to insure only sick older people. >> that's jumping ten steps forward, john. >> but more probable at this point than the alternative. >> will is -- will is very excited about the possibility of another tarp style bailout backlash. but he's a couple of move moves ahead of himself. the reason republicans are so invested in this, they have advertised obama care as the end of freedom as
